On the 18th of October 2011, our group the NyanCarrot searched an overgrown fenced off field in Cape Elizabeth Maine hoping to find wild carrot. Our group consisted of two 8th graders. We looked for the plant in a enclosed area full of weeds, other plant life, mud pools, and various other life. Our group had high hopes we might find lots of the Wild Carrot but only found a minimal amount. The specimen we studied was mostly wilted and dead, but one good flower remained. It was right next to the fence on high ground. It was a dry area. Other plants found in the area were milkweed, tall grass, bushes, and a small wet muddy area with cattails. This area was not mowed, and there was little space for plants to grow.
The most obvious similarity between my plant and an identified wild carrot plant is the large flower that is made by the union of many clusters of small white flowers.
there are clusters of curled up flowers that resemble a beet, I found these present on pictures of other wild carrot plants
